      I'm laughing while trying to imagine some Tom Clancy plot in which Japan suddenly turns on us and our boys are undone by Japanese pilots' well-honed ability to hover in place all day.

          Some poor schmucks have to die at the initial reveal of the threat to make it credible. Probably including some officer or bureaucrat who scoffed at a "good guy" character who recognized what was coming and tried to warn everyone. They'll pull it together and come back by the end.

          But he did write a Jap 9/11ing the Capitol Building during the inauguration of the president, leaving Jack Ryan president by dint of being the only member of cabinet not present.

        Replace "hover in place all day" with "kamikaze attack" and you have a real Tom Clancy book from that weird period in the 1990s when everybody in America wanted to go slap a Jap again before the economic reality changed and everybody went back to buying Toyota and Sony like nothing had happened.

    stationary trial to pass a grade so you can hover in place during certain wind conditions, they wait for that wind condition to tell them it's time to take the trial

        Everyone does that, as moronic as it sounds hovering in place is a core skill.

        That might explain hovering for a few hours, but the entire day?

        I mean it's a navy guy doing his thing on base and everytime he looks over theres a helicopter hovering there.
        That doesn't mean it's the same pilot all day.
        Although it still could be, autism is a hell of a drug.

        they like their data, and odds are the single guy reporting this may not have seen them land to change pilots

        if it was all day, I assume they're breaking in new helo's in case they're faulty somewhere

        They'll be swapping out pilots with each likely only hovering for ~30 minutes.
        >inb4 that's not "all day"
        News headlines are rarely based in reality.

        I live by an air base housing a search and rescue helicopter squadron and when is windy or rains they do that too here, a entire day of take off hover over the tarmac, maybe do a loop around, land, change crew, do it again.

        So yes, must be something related to have x hours flown in bad weather for qualification I guess.

    Easy. Its about fuel budget. If you don't spend what you got allocated this year/month/etc, you will get less next period.

    Military helicopters practice hovering techniques for various reasons, including landing and taking off on uneven surfaces, and maintaining position during search and rescue operations. NAF Atsugi is a joint base with the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF), so training exercises involving hovering helicopters are common.
